According to RT, Vladimir Putin would defeat Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or Bernie Sanders in the US General Election of 2016:
Putin’s approval ratings are shockingly high in the US, where leaders of the nation constantly criticize Russia’s actions in reasserting herself in Crimea.
Russian President Putin has rode a wave of popularity recently, after claiming that “God can judge ISIS, but it is my job to send them to him.”
Unlike Obama, who criticized Americans after the Paris bombings, Putin promised his people that he will never let them feel fear, and he will fight to stop the Islamic State, along with his new ally France.
Early in the morning , I heard an intriguing piece of news on Russian state TV: America loves Putin even more than Russians do themselves! He enjoys an 88 percent approval rating in Russia, but the figure is higher in the United States, the report on Rossia 24 television said.
“A lot has already been said about the incumbent [U.S.] president’s low ratings, a night news anchor said. “He has just been dealt a new below-the-belt blow. An opinion poll by the popular New York Daily News shows that U.S. citizens liked Vladimir Putin’s speech at the General Assembly session better than [Barack] Obama’s speech. Ninety-six percent voted for the Russian president and, accordingly, only 4 percent voted for the American president.”
I was surprised. I wrote my American friends and readers on Facebook, asking them to comment on the results of this poll.
“More than 95 percent of readers of the U.S. newspaper New York Daily News think Russian President Vladimir Putin sounded more convincing than U.S. President Obama during their speeches at the UN General Assembly,” it said. “The American president lags far behind his Russian counterpart.”
